I had knee surgery and my MIL brought me a pot of fake flowers (I have a black thumb) that no one could tell were fake! When I got back to work, I was in charge of my own lab, which for obvious reasons no live plants. So I took that to work, so it would be a little less sterile. But then I was asked everyday, at least once, how they grow in the lab and go to smell them before realizing it was fake. That was 14 yrs ago, and they are looking pretty good. They need a good dusting, but otherwise you still wouldn't know.

Actually, I do that all the time! I keep forgetting to check my phone for notes and reminders, but if I stick a post-it to the back of my phone it bugs me just enough to not be forgotten ;) Works brilliantly for tasks that have no specific time requirement.
